Rufus Wainwright private concert at Rose Bar

Posted in Uncategorized by blogwing on 03/16/2010

Last night we attended the Rufus Wainwright performance at Rose Bar. It was a busy evening for us as we stopped by the Tools for Thought Benefit to rebuild Haiti at Sotheby’s, and the Gotham Magazine party with Alicia Keyes beforehand.

Rufus’s piano was placed right in front of Rose’s fireplace to which he made some jokes about being thrown in should we not like his performance. The crowd was star studded and included: Drew Barrymore, Lucy Lui, Scarlett Johansson (where oh where is your hot hubby Ryan Reynolds?) Allan Cumming, Michael Kors, Nur Khan, Susan Sarandon, Zachary Quinto, Christian Siriano, Emma Snowdon-Jones, Anisha Lakhani and probably many more that we are forgetting. We really do love New York. We had seen Patti Smith perform an hour earlier and now we got to witness a private performance by the amazing Rufus Wainwright with 300 other special guests.
